pins & needle pain on finger

Hi, my name is Gabby and i have been recently diagnosed with RA & Gout. my last blood test (august 2017) shows that my RA is high (+19.1) & my gout is less (about 5.3). last month i got severe join pains on my left shoulder, wrist & fingers joints and the worst one was my knee. all kicked in at the same time & i couldn't walk and had to be on wheel chair. my cousin took me to the emergency at 2am friday morning because i couldn't take the pain anymore. but am ok now. just couple of day s ago i have having this frequent pins & needle pain on my finger...left fingers to be precise! could this because of my RA & gout? i broke my arm in 2000 & had an operation (ulna & radius fracture)

Gabby you have had it hard very quickly darling. I broke my ankle 2,1/2yrs ago and went on holiday a couple of weeks later non-weight bearing,so now it seems very funny but it was hard at the time. You have people taking care of you and i hope you have meds to ease your pain darling. Warm hugs from me.xxxxx

Hi Sylvi 😀 how are you? yeah i have meds but i've taught myself not to rely on it most of the time. i've been off red meat, alcohol, cigarettes for 2 1/2 half months now and feel good so far just a little pain here & there! but it is way much better than before now and my family have decided to only have red meat twice a month (so family support right there). for me red meat is completely out of my menu!
